Accessing Apache Airflow - Amazon Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow

Accessing Apache Airflow

Amazon MWAA let's you access your Apache Airflow environment using multiple methods: the Apache Airflow user interface (UI) console, the Apache Airflow CLI, and the Apache Airflow REST API. You can use the Amazon MWAA console to view and invoke a DAG in your Apache Airflow UI, or use Amazon MWAA APIs to get a token and invoke a DAG. This section describes the permissions needed to access the Apache Airflow UI, how to generate a token to make Amazon MWAA API calls directly in your command shell, and the supported commands in the Apache Airflow CLI.
